Way back in August, I talked about vacation knitting. I talked about mindless knitting, necessary knitting, and challenging knitting. And the thing is, I talked about all of that knitting like I’d have it all done when I got home from that blissful 2 weeks on Cape Cod.
How about a moment of truth?
This is the current state of my knitting projects.
I find it very interesting that I did very little mindless knitting, absolutely NO necessary knitting, and lots and lots of challenging knitting.
Here’s the thing, though. The challenging knitting is fun and I love that Cactus Shawl but the mindless knitting is a pair of birthday socks for Hannah. And her birthday was September 3rd. And the necessary is a birthday present for my cousin Len. And his birthday was also September 3rd.
Why is it that the minute you put a deadline on something it becomes infinitely unappealing?
